Leadership Series Final – Are You Getting The Best Out Of Your People?

In last week’s article I covered the three key leadership behaviours of ‘competence’, ‘emotional maturity’ and ‘leading change’. A very large Australian company where I had worked with dedication and loyalty for 10 years employed a new competent General Manager, but unfortunately he lacked emotional maturity and couldn't engage the hearts and minds of his employees with regard to change. The end result, I and many others’ bugged out rather quickly. It demonstrates the importance of being effective in all the 12 key leadership behaviours, not just some of them. Retention of key employees is critical.

Leadership Series Continues – Are You Getting The Best Out Of Your People?

In my last article I covered the three key leadership behaviours of ‘Setting the Tone’, ‘Walking the Talk’ and ‘Fairness’. One of the mistakes that aspiring leaders often make is trying too hard to be liked or to be popular, as opposed to being effective. Focussing on being likeable can lead to weak leadership, but what employees need and what works is strong leadership, and where required, assertive leadership. The need to be liked is natural, but make it a side benefit or outcome, not a leadership goal. If you work hard on consistently displaying the 12 key leadership behaviours then you will be liked and you will be popular.

Leadership Series Continues – Are You Getting The Best Out Of Your People?

In last month's article we covered the first three of what I believe are the twelve key behaviours to work on to become a better leader.

My view is that poor leadership is amongst the top five factors limiting business growth, because it’s difficult to retain quality employees in an environment with inadequate leadership. Good workers want to work for good leaders. Conversely poor workers often tolerate poor leaders because it provides them with an environment where they can ‘hide’, and exert their often difficult and undermining behavioural traits throughout the organisation.

Leadership – Are You Getting The Best Out Of Your People?

I have identified 12 key leadership criteria to have top of mind and continuously work on. These are required daily behaviours to implement, not personality traits. Everyone will have a slightly different leadership style based on their personality type, that’s fine. The behaviours listed below are independent of personality type. Good leadership is largely about confidence and believing that you can be a good leader. As with everything in life, to be good at it takes practice and dedication to the cause.
